In 1985 Sting sang the lyric “…I hope the Russians love their children, too.” It was a powerful message in a song intended to remind us all “we share the same biology, regardless of ideology.” You can look up the rest of the lyrics on your own.

I couldn’t help but think about that song as I watched this powerful TEDxJaffa Talk by Israeli graphic designer Ronny Edry who kicked off an online mutual “love-in” of Israelis and Iranians. Can a digital image created by one person erase milliennia of indoctrined-conflict? Can his poster really signal a change in the course of diplomacy?
